Gaming Screenshots of Anniversary
How do I take a screenshot?
In LotRO, F12 removes
quickslots etc from the display. N toggles names on and off. F11
makes a screenshot that goes into your computer's Documents folder
under Lord of the Rings Online.
In WoW, use your keyboard's
version of PrintScreen (PrntScrn on the top row on mine) to make the
screenshot. The image goes into the game's folder under Screenshots.
If you can't join a group, feel free to take solo
screenshots in your game of choice to send here.
